Step 1...2...

Well today Trace took 2 steps!!! I thought that I was going to explode! I couldn't get the camcorder quick enough! I was so scared that I was going to miss something, well I did... 2 steps! I still look at him and remember the 7 pounds 11 ounce baby boy that D and I brought home in October and now he is doing so much and in no time he will be running around and getting into everything! He is the most amazing thing that has happened to me and God knows how thankful I am about my little monkey!!! 

We had our family pictures taken the other week, here is a preview!!!

Well lots has changed since my last entry, I am now in my 3rd class at Ashford, 4.0 GPA so far and if I continue with taking just one class at a time I will graduate December 2012! I have the opportunity to starting 2 classes at a time which will move my graduation date up to February 2012!! I had an interview last week with a bank here in town and if I get that job I am going to continue with just 1 class but if I don't then I will be graduating in February!!!

Lots of other things have been going one since my last entry, Kristin found out that she is going to have a girl and Jenny finds out what she is having next week!!! 

Trace is eating baby food, has his first tooth, and he is actually crawling now instead of just doing his frog hop crawl! :)  He says mama and dada all the time, it is only a matter of time before he will start walking!! :)

It is a Military friendly school that is going to allow me to finish my degree all online and still be able to be a stay at home mom and wife!!! I am so excited to get started on the path of finishing up my degree!!!! :)

More GREAT news... last month when Trace and I went home to South Carolina for a visit we got some good news. My sister is going to have another baby! My nephew, Seth, is 9 years old so it has been a long time waiting but we are so very excited!   BABY BOOM..... because not only is my sister going to have another baby but also one of my very best friends!  :)

February.... busy month!!!

Well first off, I hope that everyone had a great Valentines Day with the ones they love! We had our Valentines on Sunday because D had to work yesterday but we grilled chicken and had a great dinner. Yesterday Trace and I spent the day together being lazy on the couch and watching Tru Blood (which I am not addicted to.)

I also made chili for the first time, it turned out ok but I will try a different recipe next time! :)
Trace turned 4 months on Valentines as well and it breaks my heart to think about how fast he is growing up! He was sick all weekend but thank God he is feeling much better now!

My birthday is coming up and I will be 26... I feel old saying that but this year is going to be wonderful! I have two amazing guys in my life that make feeling old feel better!!! :) My parents and nephew are coming to visit this weekend and to celebrate my birthday with me! I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!

Christmas... CHECK! New Years... CHECK! Resolutions.....UMMMMWe

First off I want to say that I hope everyone had a GREAT Christmas and New Years with all their family and friends! We had a wonderful time with our families and friends. Trace didnt really know what was going on this year but he got lots of clothes, he got 2 storybooks; one from Nana "Frosty the Snowman", and "All the ways I love you" from his Meemaw. The books can record you reading the book so he can always hear them reading his bedtime story!! It gave me the idea that I want to eventually get all of them and have a different family member record their voice reading the book. Being 4 hours away from family this will help Trace to remember everyone! He also got lots of learning toys and he even got a stuffed Smurf which is just as big as him! :) 

New Years was a quiet but fun evening for us, we spent the evening with some good friends the Bernal family. We played Just Dance 2 and ate pizza, Trace slept most of the night until about 15 minutes till midnight, so he was my New Years kiss! :) 

Now is the time that every sets goals that they never live up to so I am not going to set ones that I cant live up to so.....

1. Start eating better including cooking more healthy foods.
2. Exercise more
3. Travel to somewhere I have never been.
4. Continue going to school and finish getting my degree.
5. Learn to have more patience with other people.

Hope everyone has a great year and try to only set goals that you can accomplish!!!!
